goFLUX has set itself the goal of reducing urban traffic volume, emissions and reduce costs for road users. The goFLUX platform wants to connect people in their area so that they can find a lift flexibly and at short notice. Other providers of such platforms target longer-distance travel which is planned early. In contrast, the innovate idea of goFLUX focuses on short rides in the city and commuter traffic. The platform is initially marketed as a white-label solution to large companies whose employees can form flexible car pools for their way to work and private journeys.

The first version of the goFLUX app was developed by an IT service provider with offshore resources and was made available after a short time for first practical tests in cooperation with the universities of Bonn/Rhein-Sieg and Ingolstadt. Besides interesting findings on user behavior, the test revealed need for improvement in the stability and technical quality of the app. Thus, a partner had to be found who has expertise with Java backends and native apps for iOS and Android. The development team size should also be flexibly adaptable in order to be able to support development work in the longer term. A planned launch with the first business customer set an ambitious timetable.
The common focus on high quality standards in software development was an essential prerequisite for the reliable functioning of the carpooling app.
